Taipei, Aug. 5 (CNA) One of Taiwan's first private museums to be registered under the country's Museum Act received its official certification Monday, and its founder hoped at the ceremony that the program will offer the assistance private museums need to thrive.

K.C. Chen, executive director of Museum 207, a private museum founded in a Taipei government-designated "historic building," praised the Museum Act at the ceremony for taking into consideration private museums, which are generally housed in rehabilitated old structures.

"The museum law in fact was a very welcome change and very important to the development of museums in Taiwan," she told CNA after accepting Museum 207's official paperwork as a private museum.

"This law actually represents the government's participation in private museums. They will provide the resources we need through this certification process," Chen said.    [FULL  STORY]
